'Bachelor' Star Colton Underwood Comes Out As Gay

Publish date:

Former Bachelor star Colton Underwood has officially come out as gay.

"I've ran from myself for a long time. I've hated myself for a long time," he said on Good Morning America. "And I'm gay. And I came to terms with that earlier this year and have been processing it. And the next step in all of this was sort of letting people know."


Robin Roberts then asked him whether he felt he mislead the women on the show.

"I've thought a lot about this too, of, 'Do I regret being the Bachelor and do I regret handling it the way that I did?' I do," he said. "I do think I could've handled it better, I'll say that," he said.

Not everybody is sympathetic. Colton's ex, Cassie Randolph, left the show during his season. He then chased her down, begging her to give him a chance. She did. They broke up months ago, and Colton stalked her, even putting a tracking device on her car. She was forced to seek a restraining order against him.
